Canning Day Is Here!


Hi Y'all I am so happy you are here.
It is is time for Farmgirl Friday.  
Today it is my turn to blog about sweet Lori's new book Farm Girl Vintage.


I have been doing a little canning today.
I put up a few strawberries, cherries and apples.
I love this block it was so easy to follow Lori's instructions.
This is a 12 inch block.  Easy peasy.


I have to decided to incorporate both the 6 inch and the 12 inch blocks into my quilt.  It will be fun to make both sizes.

You should pop in and visit Lori's blog.  She is showing us what all we can do with her Farmgirl blocks from pot holders to an apron. 

Lori has also picked out a Farmgirl bundle to go with her book, you can find it at Fat Quarter Shop

If you want to see what everyone else is making head on over to Instagram #farmgirlfridays it is so much fun seeing what everyone is doing.

Thank you so much Lori and Fat Quarter Shop for putting this awesome book together.

Hugs,
donna

Sew Sweet Bee Blocks


Happy Wednesday sweet friends.
Hope you are all having a great week so far.


April was my month for the Sew Sweet bee and I asked for Cherry baskets.
This one is from Amy from A Quilting Sheep.  It is lavender with white pin dots, oh how my heart sings for polka dots.
Amy also sent me some typed fabric which I have been wanting for a while.  
Thank you so much Amy for the beautiful basket and the fabric's.


Heather from Vintage Grey sent me this block.  I sew love the fabric Heather used in my block.  She also sent me the sweetest coasters,  30's fabric and the coolest recipe cards.  The recipe cards are made out of wood and say Texas on them.  I have never seen these before.  Thank you so much for my sweet block and all the sweetness Heather. 

Heather is so talented.  If you have not been to her shop you are truly missing out.  You should head over and see all the cute things Heather has to offer.


Renee from Sewn With Grace sent me this basket block.  I asked for lavender or aqua.  This fabric is just perfect.  My heart just skips a beat for Lecien.   Renee also sent me a piece of lavender 30's fabric which fits in perfectly with my stash.  Thank you so much Renee I just love my basket and my extra treat .

I am so loving receiving all the basket blocks, and can not wait to start this quilt.

Hugs,

Farm Girl Vintage Blocks


Happy Monday y'all.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  
Yesterday we got a lot of rain.  Oh how I love to hear the rain fall.


I did get a little sewing done.  This is the the Baking Day Block.  This block was a lot of fun and went together really fast.  


I just had to add a little lavender in this block.  lol!  This block is the Butter Churn Block.  It gave me a little bit of a fit but for the most part went together easy peasy.  These days I am loving aqua and lavender together.  It just makes my heart sing.

Stay tuned folks, this Friday May 22 is my day to blog about a Farm Girl Vintage Block.  I am so excited I can not wait. 

Hope y'all have a awesome Monday.

Hugs,
donna

Farm Girl Vintage


Good morning and Happy Monday sweet friends.


This is my Autumn block from the Farm Girl Vintage book.
I had a little trouble with this block so I had to walk away from it and come back to it.  I  think it was just nap time.  lol!
It is still not all that.  But happiness is homemade and this block will fit it.


Block 3 is Baby Chick.  This was a fun and fast block to make.  I have had this yellow fabric for a long time and I love my baby chick wearing it.

Lori is making some really cute things with these blocks you should pop on over and see what it is all about.

Wishing you a happy day.

Hugs,
donna
